It's called Bear Corn and sometimes Squaw Root in the Appalachians.

From what I've been told by locals in the Shenandoah area, bears use it to cure their constipated state that they have during their semi-hibernation period. Black Bears in the Appalachians don't have a full hibernation.
It's usually a sign that morels are in full swing but nearing the end of their fruitng period.
